A little of my story...

Ever since I can remember I have been using my hands, from caring for animals on my parents' farm to painting to growing medicinal plants for herbal remedies to massage & craniosacral therapy.  All of these tactile paths have brought me to the support work I do as a doula.

 

I realized I wanted to become a doula at my friends birth. I massaged her through out her pregnancy and had the privilege of attending her birth, where I saw how important the role of the doula is. I am so excited that I am now able to create a full circle approach to wellness through massage,  birth & postpartum care, treating the whole family from day one. 

I grew up in a large family in rural Scotland. My twin and I are the eldest of seven siblings and we are two sets of twins! I moved to England to go to art college and then lived in Spain for three years, first teaching English and then working on organic vegetable farms. When I moved to San Francisco in 2014 I decided to become a massage therapist and I have been enjoying and building on my skills ever since. 

I feel very grateful to be part of such a lovely community here in the bay area. I have gathered such a breath of experience and resource network having worked with acupuncturists, chiropractors, craniosacral therapists, and bodyworkers. 

I volunteer at St Luke's Hospital and The San Francisco Homeless Prenatal Program. If you'd like to support the SFHPP you can follow the link here.

I like being active; hiking, rock climbing, and practicing yoga. I love being outdoors and exploring the green and open spaces of San Francisco and further a field.
